Polka dots: Nailing May’s biggest trend courtesy of Niamh Cullen


Niamh Cullen has been keeping us all in awe with her Pinterest-worthy fetival attire in recent weeks. 

However, it's the stylist and bloggers day-to-day looks that have us adding-to-cart. 

Polka-dots are one of the summer's biggest fashion trends, and if there is any Intsa-influencers pulling off the look, it's Niamh:

While polka dots are a statement in themselves, pairing the pattern with a fiercely cut dress can bring them from the beachwalk to the boardroom and back.  

Teaming the print with a ruffle sleeve or contrasting panelling adds interest, with  minimal accessories needed.

Large, all over polka dots make a massive statement on the most pared back of dress shapes. 

Niamh looks particularly chic in her square cut slip dress from Topshop, paired with narrow, red, 90s style sunglasses and layered gold necklaces. 

Make the look your own by flinging a denim jacket over top, with a pair of white runners or chunky black boots.

While living it up in Las Vegas, Niamh snatched the title of most stylish with her baloon-sleeved bandeau top. 

Introduce the hot print to your wardrobe with a wear-with-anything blouse – be it a leather skirt, your favourite jeans or a pair of denim cut-offs.
